The Enfield Poltergeist: London's Most Famous Haunting

The Enfield Poltergeist

In 1977 North London, a poltergeist haunted the Hodgson home. For over 40 years it has been debated whether the haunts were real, or just a childish hoax. The film The Conjuring 2 is based on this particular haunting.

According to Time Out, “ Funny goings-on in a council house in the late 1970s put the north London suburb on the map of the world’s most haunted towns. It all started in 1977, when single mum Peggy Hodgson heard a loud thud. Upstairs she found her daughters Janet, 11, and Margaret, 13, with a chest of drawers in the middle of their bedroom. The girls swore it moved of its own accord.”
